, and also what you would expect him to say, the older brother, tamerlan, was the driving force behind these terrorist attacks. based on what the investigators are getting from dzhokhar, this government sore tells me that the brothers, according to dzhokhar, seem to be self-radicalized, self-starters. they were motivated by the driving train of thought was jihadist thought. and all the governments -- i'm sorry all the political or religious implications that entails the idea being, of course, that they thought they construed islam to be under attack and needed to fight back. that's what they're saying based on initial interviews, preliminary interviews with dzhokhar. >> where he's speaking, communicating by writing, by hand signals, nodding? >> not speaking. communicating through nodding, through writing and other ways of nonverbal. he has that bullet wound to his throat. he can't really speak. he spoke one word in that interview with the magistrate yesterday. >> no. >> he said no. and the magistrate said let the record reflect that i believe the defendant, the suspect, is saying no. h

, the older brother tamerlan tsarnaev seems much less confounding in that it conforms more squarely to radicalization. we know from accounts of people who knew him that he had in fact become more religious in recent months and years. "the wall street journal" reported that he gave up boxing which he trained at for years as well as drinking and smoking as he dug into religion. his uncle said he ended his relationship with tamerlan in 2009 because of the quote radical crap" tamerlan had begun to espouse. he was steered toward a strict strain of islam in recent years and he began opposing the wars in afghanistan and iraq which is i should note here not radical in and of itself but that he also turned to websites and literature claiming that the cia was behind the terrorist attacks of september 11, 2001, that jews controlled the world. there are two very specific accounts of tamerlan's recent behavior that are both fascinating and important in trying to understand how he might have become the kind of violent extremist he is accused of having been when he died after a shootout with autho

, tamerlan's return from russia? >> reporter: that's the big question. how the fbi, which interviewed tamerlan in 2011, lost track of him. what we have learned, the fbi database did not catch that trip to russia, that important trip where he reportedly became radicalized. officials here in washington say his name was misspelled on a flight manifest and fell through the cracks. they're determined to prevent that from happening again. john and diana? >> devin dwyer from washington. thank you. >>> another person who may be able to shed some light on the plot, the older brother's widow. the fbi wants to question katherine russell and her attorney. a meeting is being arranged. so far, she says she had no idea about her husband's deadly plot. and investigators are looking at whether tamerlan was involved in the brutal murder of three young men in 2011. one of whom was his roommate. the three young men were found with their throats slashed. >>> authorities in canada have foiled a plot to unleash terror on hundreds of unsuspecting train passengers. two men under arrest for planning the attack

there what could now be called warning signs? >> 26-year-old tamerlan, the fbi questioned him several years ago because they were keeping a very close eye on him but people who knew him say, look, he was a quiet guy. he seemed to be living the typical american life as well. he was religious, devout muslim. a boxer. he wanted to join the u.s. olympic boxing team. he drove a measurrcedes. he dropped out of college to marry an american woman. they were taken into police custody for a bit yesterday. by all accounts this was a religious man but a man who just seemed to fit in very well here. >> still so many questions. jeff, appreciate the insight this morning. >> a question lingering today could the bombing suspects ties to disputed territory of chechnya led them to violence? andrea mitchell is nbc's chief foreign affairs correspondent. >> that's the connection what would have been going on there is what investigators want to question dzhokhar about when he is medically able to talk. officials believe he was following the lead of his older brother, tamerlan, who was radicalized in a six-month t
is the surviving suspect here, dzhokhar tsarnaev, is in hospital. tamerlan born in kyrgystan, comes in 2002. he becomes a u.s. citizen, 9/11/2012. he was a wrestler, enrolled at the university of massachusetts-dartmouth. so many friends talking so positively about him. tamerlan, his older brother, does that travel. he comes later than his younger brother. he was mayrried, had a 3-year-od daughter. had a domestic violence incident. he dropped out of community colle college. he was a competitive boxer. people speaking very positively about him. but, chairman mike rogers, now we have more information about some evidence of him sort of dropping out of society, as it were, information after he comes back from foreign travel, postings on his youtube account and other social media indicating that he had exposure to jihadist elements whether that's connect canned to chechnya and the struggles there or otherwise. what do you know this morning and what do you want to know? >> it's important to understand why, in fact, the fbi interviewed him in the first place. so they had information from a foreign inte
waiting for? go call now! we'll finish up here. tamerlan >> important to understand why the fbi interviewed him in the first place. they had information from the foreign intelligence service about his possible radicalization. they went from there the fbi did their due diligence and did a very thorough job about trying to run that to the ground. then asked more help from that intelligence service to try to get further clarification. unfortunately they stopped cooperating. >> a foreign government asked the fbi to look into tamerlan tsarnaev as a radical. but they closed these. could this attack have been prevented and did the fbi drop the ball? fo rmer senior ncif official robert mcfadden. i will start with you robert. we have a lot of claims here that the fbi had to close their investigation of tamern and we had an fbi gentlemen on last night who says the fbi once they csed it no longer had any authority to collect intelligence domestically. so now what we have got are at least two people that we know of who were investigated the fbi, that being major nadal hassan from fort hood
this morning. he described his 26-year-old son tamerlan who had been killed, somebody who is smart. his younger one who is on the run, dzhokar, a second year medical student of the according to ap and according to the father in russia. he is such an intelligent boy. he expected them to come here on holidays. according to ap they spoke to the father that the younger son who is on the run, police may be honing on now in watertown, massachusetts may have been a medical student in the united states. his father said he was expecting him to come home on the holidays. one other thing i would like to note after all the hours of coverage this morning, much was made of the first initial shots we're seeing on the screen of the base ball caps on the suspected terrorists now how they were trying to americanize themselves. now they have been up to the country for ten years they were technically americanized. i think much discussion in the coming days, what will we call these terrorists? will we call them domestic terrorists? or will we still call them foreign terrorists? martha? martha: good point. as you ju
today, new questions about how the fbi interrogated tamerlan tsarnaev before the attacks. >> why didn't the fbi follow up on that? you combine the first interrogation, the first examination plus the subsequent act. when somebody is brought to your attention, you investigate and find nothing and then he carries out murders, you wonder, didn't you miss something in the investigation? >> and today, our investigative team uncovered new details about the suspect's weapons. tamerlan and dzhokhar both carried illegal guns. neither had proper permits nor petitions and dzhokhar tsarnaev was under age. within the last hour the white house explained why the surviving suspect will go through the criminal system. >> he will not be treated as an enemy combatant. we will prosecute this terrorist through our civilian system of justice under u.s. law. the united states citizens cannot be tried in military commissions and it is important to remember that since 9/11, we have used the federal court system to convict and incarcerate hundreds of terrorists. >> nbc news justice correspondent pete williams i
and video. suspect one was in the black hat, that was the older brother tamerlan tsarnaev. about five hours later we got reports of shots in cambridge. now let's talk about that. university police officer sean collier was shot at cambridge. this is the area. he later died. not long afterra that and still in cambridge we got the reports of a carjacking, police say the suspects car jacked a car, later released the owner. police were soon looking then for the suv and followed it west to water town. about 1:00 a.m. eastern time people reports shots of gun fire and explosions. then in a shoot out suspect number one, 26-year-old tamerlan tsarnaev was killed. a transit officer richard donahue was also injured but dzhokhar tsarnaev escaped, that's the brother known as the man in the white hat. he got away and that's when this manhunt started and the area from water town to boston, that shelter in place was put in and for hours authorities went door to door with no luck. it seemed that the day would end without finding him and certainly that was frustrating for authorities. 6:00 p.m. eastern time th
intelligence agency about tamerlan as early as 2011 and actually investigated him, questioned him about radical jihadi sympathies. it came from the russian intelligence service, and the fbi says they found no evidence of criminal activities and basically let the matter stand. now, what's interesting is in january of 2012, after getting that report, after doing that investigation, he flies to russia for six months. and then returns to the country and then shortly thereafter sets up this youtube account filled with radical jihadi postings clearly indicative of sympathies with that cause. now, that's not evidence of a crime. that doesn't trigger necessarily any charges, but it's going to raise questions about what the fbi knew and when they knew it. >> okay. michael isikoff, thanks so much. please stay put because next i'm going to ask you about any other accomplices and what officials are saying today about that. thanks, michael. >>> let's get more on the suspects' international links. i'm joined by richard engel. we're glad you're here. >> thank you. >> i loved what you said on "rock center" las

the bomb and they shot the police officers. and he he said, tamerlan said quote, we just killed a cop don't mess with us. he not only confessed but answered questions of how they carried out the attack. they learned how to make the bombs from an online magazine published by al-qaeda. they did it because they had recently became deeply religious and opposed u.s. involvement with iraq and afghanistan: the 24-year-old told authorities that she saw her husband on thursday just hours before he died in a gun battle with police but she said she had no idea that he had committed the bombings or was planning more attacks. today her lawyer said this brief statement. >> as a mother, a sister, a daughter, a wife, she deeply mourns the pain and loss to innocent victims students, law enforcement officers families, and our community. >> michael: the suspect mother went even further telling nbc news there was simply no way that her children committed the horrible crime. she spoke to reporters. >> what has happened is a terrible thing, but i know that my kids have nothing to do with this. i know it. i am
tsarnaev and tamerlan tsarnaev walking towards the finish line with backpacks, a second and crucial piece of video, the fbi says, comes from a surveillance camera mounted on this restaurant. at 2:42, court documents say the still unreleased video shows dzhokhar tsarnaev with a backpack walked towards the scene of a second bombing. at 2:45, he slips his backpack off. still photos show the backpack on the ground at his feet. when the first bomb goes off, the fbi says, the video shows the crowd looking towards the finish line in alarm. but the fbi says tsarnaev virtually alone among the individuals in front of the strauvent appears calm. he walks away, it says, without his backpack, and ten seconds later, the second bomb goes off in the spot where he left the backpack. the fbi says both the marathon bombs were made with pressure cookers and metal bee-bees. they contained hobby fuse similar to this. at the scene of thursday night's shootout in watertown, investigators say they found another bomb and hobby fuse and bee-bees. the fbi says they searched dzhokhar tsarnaev's dorm room and found be
viewers up to speed on travel that tamerlan, the older brother, who is now deceased has done recently? >> last year from january through july he left, flew out of new york's kennedy airport and flew to russia and spent six months overseas. whereabouts unknown. they're desperately trying to track those movements to find out was he just going back to visit relatives or did he go to engage in some sort of terror training or rad dalization? that remains unanswered at this early stage of the investigation. that is one piece of the puzzle. the other question or these documents that we've obtained show that law enforcement really didn't get on to their trail till recently because based on the travel warnings, they weren't date stamped till 6:00 a.m. this morning on both the brothers. so it's clear they really weren't on the radar screen anytime before in terms of law enforcement. so people always ask, where there any warning signs? were these people -- did they do anything that would raise that red flag? there appears to be nothing based on the documents. and the people we've spoke within so

the road where the two boston marathon suspects, tamerlan and dzhokhar tsarnaev were engaging in this gunfight with police. we'll scroll through a couple of these pictures. keep your eyes here on the screen. the photos here show the brothers huddling behind a stolen suv at times as we reported through the hours last week, shooting at police, before this older brother tamerlan charges, runs towards these officers here, then he's seen lying in the street. the suv driven by his younger brother who we know is in fair condition at this hour at a hospital here in boston, he's in the car, accelerates toward his older brother, on the ground. >> what is the context for that? do they believe he was trying to escape, do they believe he was trying to maybe separate his brother from the officers or is there anything on this? >> i think his brother was on the ground, his brother was enga engaging, strapped with explosives and the younger brother from everything i've gleaned wants to get out of there. >> maybe because of the explosives. what does he wind up doing? >> ultimately gets out of t
question this morning is: how much did other members of their family know? keep in mind that tamerlan, the 26-year-old suspect who was killed on thursday night moving into friday, that he was married. he was married to an american woman who became a muslim after she married him. they had a three-year-old daughter together. it's questionable now whether or not they were actually still together at the time of this bombing. some sources are saying that she, catherine, pictured here, had moved back home with her mother, judith, with the baby. and maybe that would be when tamerlan ended up going back to russia for those six months because if you're married and you have a small child, you might wonder, that would be suspicious to be gone for six months. >>steve: she is on the cover of the new york post today because she always dreamed of growing up, joining the peace corps and serving this country and others abroad. then she got tangled up with this guy, converted to islam. next thing you know, she dropped out. there is an interesting item in the "wall street journal" today that says essent

and the subsequent shootout in which the older of the two were killed. his name is tamerlan tsarnaev. he is 26 -- was 26 years old. it's his brother. the man said to be wearing the white hat who got away and has been pursued by authorities. he drove the car jacked suv for a time and then got out. both of the two brothers, we're told, came to the united states roughly a decade ago. they came in when their families sought asylum. their father was a government employee. they have been living in the boston area in cambridge for several years. the younger brother has a massachusetts driver's license. he's a resident of cambridge. the older brother is a legal, permanent resident. the older brother was born in russia. the younger brother, the one they are still trying to find now, dzhokhar tsarnaev was born in kyrgyzstan. his family lives in russia and we're told his father was a public official there at one time. the reason we're told for this extraordinary security in the area of watertown is, of course, because they still don't know where the other of the two brothers, the second bomber is located
